Career lift for Stannah engineering apprentices
10:00am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
A GROUP of Andover apprentices have celebrated graduating.
The 13 budding Stannah engineers were at the centre of celebrations in Stockbridge when they received their training certificates from their management teams and mentors.
Peter Perry, operations director at Stannah Lift Services, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer apprenticeships each year within the Stannah Group and continue to support training opportunities that extend the trainees’ formal qualifications, confidence and capability.
“These young people have demonstrated the type of dedication and commitment that will enable them to progress their careers within the lift industry.
“They are our future and who knows, they may, one day, be the company’s management team too.”
He added: “Apprenticeships offer fantastic opportunities to young people who like the practical work, some payment for their efforts and encouragement for their academic studies.
“It is a real and valued alternative to full-time further education.
Many of our graduates will go on to achieve higher qualifications, often sponsored by Stannah.”
All the successful candidates have completed NVQ Level 3 engineering maintenance and EOR/202 in an engineering environment.
Jon Stannah, joint managing director at Stannah Lift Services, said: “The demand for apprenticeships is huge. In a past year we offered ten positions and received over 1,000 applications.
“We are proud to say that many of our top line managers have begun their life with the company as an apprentice.”
